Spotted Lanternfly to Begin Laying Eggs

As October approaches, spotted lanternflies will begin to gear up to lay their eggs. Egg masses contain 30-50 eggs and are covered by females with a mud-like gray substance which cracks over time and looks a bit like mortar. The insects are not picky in where they lay them – you may find masses on trees, fences, and outdoor furniture, among other objects.

 

You can help by locating these egg masses on your own property and destroying them! It is possible that eggs can survive if scraped onto the ground, so scrape egg masses into a bag or container with rubbing alcohol, hand sanitizer, or a bleach solution and dispose.

 

Additionally, residents in Mercer, Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, Hunterdon, Salem, Somerset and Warren no longer need to report sightings – however you are asked to continue to eliminate both the Spotted Lanternfly and its egg masses when you see them.

Yom Kippur

Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year for those who practice Judaism, focuses on atonement and repentance. In Hebrew, Yom means ‘day’ while Kippur means ‘to atone’ and ‘to cleanse’. Thus, many of our Jewish brothers and sisters observe with a day-long fast and intensive prayer, asking for forgiveness of sins from God.

 

As Mayor and on behalf of the residents of Hamilton Township, we wish you an easy fast. G'mar Hatima Tova (May you be sealed in the Book of Life)!

State & Local Officials Investigating Cases of Legionnaires' Disease

The Hamilton Township Division of Health, working closely with the New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH), has identified a potential cluster of Legionnaires’ disease cases within Hamilton Township.

 

Legionnaires’ disease is relatively uncommon with most cases occurring in New Jersey between the months of July and October, typically peaking in August. The cluster the Division of Health is investigating includes four Township residents with confirmed cases of Legionnaires’ disease, two of which have since died. The residents became ill between August 18 and August 24, 2020. Due to HIPAA and the right to privacy, specific information on each case cannot be disclosed.

 

“While the risk to our residents remains low, Legionnaires’ disease can be a serious illness especially for those who are older or have underlying health concerns,” stated Hamilton Township Health Officer Christopher Hellwig. “If you’re not feeling well and have respiratory illness like symptoms such as fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, muscle aches, and headache I encourage you to speak with your medical provider. Legionnaires’ disease can be successfully treated with antibiotics, and is not spread from person-to-person”

 

Legionnaires’ disease is a form of pneumonia caused by Legionella bacteria. People can get Legionnaires’ disease by breathing in aerosolized water containing Legionella bacteria. Aerosolized water, also known as small droplets, can come from cooling towers (air-conditioning units for large buildings), hot tubs, cooling misters, decorative fountains, and plumbing systems.  Legionella bacteria can be found in water systems of any type, but people cannot get ill with Legionnaires’ disease by drinking water.  Home air conditioning units do not use water to cool, so these home units do not aerosolize water and are not a risk for Legionella growth.

 

While it is often difficult to determine the origin of the bacteria that infected the Hamilton residents, the investigation is ongoing and the Division of Health is attempting to identify potential sources of exposure. NJDOH and the Hamilton Division of Health recently collected environmental samples from selected sites. Additionally, Hamilton Township has hired an independent laboratory to conduct water sampling at various locations around the Township. NJDOH, Hamilton Division of Health, and NJ Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) are working to identify additional sites to sample. The sample locations the Township has identified thus far are in the Mercerville section of the Township.

 

“NJDOH and the Hamilton Township Division of Health are working closely together to identify potential sources of Legionella exposure," said Edward M. Lifshitz, MD, FACP, Medical Director, Communicable Disease Service, New Jersey Department of Health. "Since this is a continuing investigation, healthcare providers are urged to test patients with community-acquired and healthcare-acquired pneumonia for Legionnaires’ disease, especially among residents of Hamilton Township. This is important to ensure patients receive appropriate and timely treatment.”

 

Most people exposed to Legionella bacteria do not develop Legionnaires’ disease. People over the age of 50, especially those who smoke cigarettes, or those with certain medical conditions, including weakened immune systems, chronic lung disease or other chronic health conditions, are at increased risk for Legionnaires’ disease.

 

“Upon learning of the positive cases, and given Hamilton's history with Legionnaire's disease, our Health Department took swift action to investigate these cases and search not only for a common link, but for any continued possible exposure to our residents," stated Mayor Jeff Martin. "I want to thank NJDOH and NJDEP for working with our staff to coordinate efforts to ensure our residents remain healthy.”  “The symptoms of Legionnaires’ Disease and COVID-19 can be very similar which makes it even more important that anyone experiencing these symptoms immediately contact their medical provider.”

 

For more information about Legionnaires’ disease, of if you think you may have had or currently have Legionnaires’ disease make sure to speak with your medical provider. Residents can also find additional information online from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at www.cdc.gov/legionella.

HTSD Continues to Offer Breakfast and Lunch for Students During Remote Learning

 

Thank You to Scout Troop 91!

Each year Scouting Troop 91 holds a community service weekend in Veterans Park, but due to COVID-19 this years’ annual spring outing was delayed. However, this past weekend, about 60 scouts and parents from Troop 91B & Troop 91G were finally able to take to Veterans Park in order to continue their annual beautification tradition, and despite the added COVID19 protocols including mask wearing, they were able to complete the following:

 

  • Weeded, edged, and mulched with playground mulch the playset area in front of the tennis center.

  • Weeded, edged, and mulched the garden at the corner of two of the walkways at the side of the tennis center.

  • Weeded, edged, and mulched around 50 trees surrounding the tennis center area.

  • Applied a fresh coat of brown paint to two benches in the tennis center area.

  • Painted the dragons teeth at the entrance to the dog park parking lot.

  • Painted two information kiosks (Eagle project performed by a Scout from Troop 63).

  • Painted 2 benches in front of the park administration building, including the one with the statue on it.

  • Weeded, edged, and mulched around 20 trees between the baseball field and the soccer fields.

  • Cleared trash and debris from some of the walking trails.
